The scar tissue of being a CEO never leaves you or heals. You carry the wounds with you like you carry your memory with you. There are more lessons, mistakes and trials I've had to go through in the last 3 years both personally and professionally than I could ever capture and share on Facebook.
That said, all of those scars are what makes me who I am, what drives me to constantly keep improving, keep learning and keep pushing myself to be a better CEO the next day. It's also what let's me know that the path I'm on is both authentic and worthwhile.
I have so much passion for the work I'm doing and business we're building that it can come off as if I'm not even working in the midst of trying new restaurants and traveling across the country and that this is all fun for me. Truth is, it is. Because I've worked my ass off and had to go through miles of shit in life to walk on the beach of being my own boss, leading a business and loving what I get to call "work" each and every day.
The scar tissue on my feet is what allows me to walk on the hot coals along this beach and still keep my eyes on the ocean of opportunity in front of my business.
